This marks our first-ever visit to the Fairbanks in Streeterville. And if any other units compare to this 30th floor penthouse, we might have to make this a regular thing. But don't get too attached; it recently sold to the tune of $803K— $43K more than its '09 sales price. The stylish 2/2.5 unit's 1,500-square foot interiors manage to feel roomy with ten-foot ceilings and full-height glass throughout. But the outdoor space really makes our day: a south-facing balcony assails the senses with uncommon perspectives of the lake and Trump Tower. It also rocks a study, Sub Zero fridge, breakfast bar, marble bath, Italian cabinetry, and a split floor plan for enhanced privacy.
